About Rita Prins

We are from California, still farming. We went to Roatan to be with our son, who was serving as a missionary. While he was there with his family he built this home.

Now we go twice a year and continue helping the people there.

Rita Prins purchased this house in 2008

Why Rita Prins chose Roatan

When the property came for sale we decided to buy it and continue to use it as our home base to be among our friends there.

What makes this house unique

The home is close to Coxen Hole for shopping. It is also private with a gate that is closed each night. The snorkeling is great. Swimming in the warm water of the Caribbean is a treat. 2 Docks down is Blue Bay, a dive and snorkel shop.

The most enjoyable part of the home is sitting on the deck watching the ocean and seeing the beauty of creation.

Close to grocery shopping and restaurants

Party house next door has jet ski's and lots of party activities you are welcome to join in the fun

Best Location for group!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfectly laid out for multiple families/ couples to hang out and have private space. The large kitchen made cooking and entertaining a wonderful experience. The neighbors were welcoming and fun and the House Manager was helpful and accommodating for every question. Gerzon and Everett that watch the house were excellent snorkel guides as well . Overall this deserves a 10 star review!! Can not wait for the next trip!

I absolutely loved my recent stay in Roatan! The house is perfect!! The views, the location! It was very clean and well maintained! The house was stocked with everything we needed.. We spent the afternoons laying out on the dock and swimming in the clear warm water! We watched amazing sunsets right from the front deck! I would definitely like to go back!

Wonderful place to stay on the beautiful island of Roatan.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this spacious home very much. We had plenty of room for our group of up to 14 people. The kids especially enjoyed the snorkeling and swimming off the dock. We all enjoyed the beautiful morning view on the deck and absolutely spectacular evening sunset views. We found it to be very peaceful and quiet at the house and when we wanted more action we took the taxi to West End where it is more tourist like.

Harrison was on site during our stay and took very good care of us. We highly recommend this house. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your house for this time. We loved it!

Perfect home for getting away and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We rented Rita's home for 4 nights. It easily accommodated my husband and I, our 3 adult children, 1 daughter in law, 1 son in law and our 19 month old granddaughter. The house is bright, spacious, well maintained and well stocked with everything you might need to make for a relaxing, stress free vacation. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware, dishware and some basic spices and herbs. Rita, as well as the management company, are quick to respond to emails and to address questions or concerns you might have before your arrival. The management company was waiting for us at the airport and showed us the way to the house providing a brief orientation to the property. The property management company overseeing the daily running of the place was very professional and easy to reach when guidance was needed. Francisco, Luca and Gail all speak excellent English and went above and beyond the call of duty when I inquired about having a chef come to the house to prepare an island meal incorporating the Barracuda our "men folk" caught on a deep sea fishing trip. Chef Dixie (; 9556-7566) prepared an outstanding meal for us which was one of the highlights of our time in Roatan sitting around the dining room table in this gorgeous house right on the ocean enjoying the island flavors of coconut shrimp, conch fritters, island baked chicken, grilled barracuda, fresh sauteed local vegetables with rice and beans. She and her assistant were kind and easy to talk to. They were prompt, professional and cleaned up after themselves leaving the kitchen in good order. Sandy Bay is a great location if you are looking for lodging that is away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded beaches.

Beautiful property with spectacular sunsets

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Prins house. The house is spacious equipped with all the modern conveniences. The kitchen had everything you need to prepare meals, snacks and drinks. Having the big water cooler was very nice to be able to refill water bottles for the day. The beach in front of the house was clean and well groomed. Although getting to the reef in front of the house took some effort, it was well worth it to snorkel. The view from the windows and the balcony always deliver a spectacular sunset. Although it was a bit further from the west end than I thought, it was a great location making it convenient to the grocery stores. A/C and the WI-FI worked very well. Enrique, the manager, was friendly and very helpful in taking care of anything that we needed. Great place to stay while you relax in paradise.

Amazing Location and Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time at this location. The house is very clean and in excellent working order. With direct beach access it was wonderful. We did not realize that you could not wade in the water without boots due to the presence of turtle grass but the water was gorgeous and the staff very accommodating. Enrique met us at the airport and was the perfect liaison. I think other than the turtle grass, the only thing that was annoying was that the next door neighbor kept chasing us off the dock between the two properties; which we found out is illegal of them to do. All docks are public property in Roatan.

The house is owned by a wonderful Christian family, which meant a lot to us as we are as well. So the whole vacation was simply excellent. Would completely recommend staying here and I thank our hosts for their generosity and professionalism.
